Converting a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster

To transition all nodes in a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster, using default configurations, perform these steps:

  1. Make sure all the nodes that you intend to transition from a logical chassis cluster to a fabric cluster are online. Run either the show vcs or show vcs detail command to check the status of the nodes.
  2. Log in to the principal node on the logical chassis cluster.
  3. Run the following command to convert all RBridge IDs: no vcs logical-chassis enable rbridge-id all default-config.
    NOTE
    To convert just one RBridge ID, specify the ID as shown in the following example: no vcs logical-chassis enable rbridge-id rbridge-id default-config.

    The nodes automatically reboot in fabric cluster mode. Plan for some down time for this transition.

  4. Run either the show vcs or show vcs detail command to check that all nodes are online and now in fabric cluster (listed as "Local-only" in the command output) mode.
